Residents Celebrate the Grand Opening of Swift Current's New Long-Term Care Facility

Released on November 18, 2016

Rural and Remote Health Minister Greg Ottenbreit joined residents at The Meadows today to celebrate the official opening of the award-winning, long-term care facility in Swift Current.

“This innovative new facility is an excellent example of our government’s commitment to patient-centred care,” Ottenbreit said.  “With residents, families and staff all involved in the design, the result is this beautiful and modern long-term care facility that more than 200 residents are now calling home.”

The Meadows project recently received a silver award in the infrastructure category from the Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships (P3) during its 2016 National Awards for Innovation and Excellence in P3s.  The award panel recognized the project for its home-like design and the high level of engagement from local businesses.

The new 225 bed long-term care facility is the first completed project in the province using a P3 funding model in co-operation with Plenary Group, SaskBuilds, and the Cypress Health Region.  It was completed on schedule and on budget at the beginning of May 2016.

“It’s a very exciting day for our region as we officially open The Meadows, our beautiful new home-like long-term care facility,” Cypress Health Region CEO Beth Vachon said.  “The Meadows has been an important project and is a vast improvement over the facilities that it replaces.  I extend my sincere appreciation to all of those who have been involved in bringing this project to life.”

The transition and move into the new facility was complete mid-September this year.  The Meadows replaces three aging long-term care facilities in the community – the Swift Current Care Centre, the Palliser Regional Care Centre and the Prairie Pioneers Lodge.
